My MacBook Pro won’t charge. It is a Mid-2010 2.4 GHz Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM, 320GB HDD and running 10.7.2.
The mag-safe adapter lights up green when I connect it but intermittently goes on and off. The battery level light on the side of the computer flashes one light only.
Also, as bad luck would have it, I was taking system updates ( I had just bought this laptop used and it was due for major updates) when I noticed the battery was very low. I connected the power supply and that’s when I noticed the problem. I just barely had time to stop the updates before it died right in the middle of them. I’m hoping this did no further damage.
Obviously, it isn’t under warranty and I’ve already spent several hundred dollars purchasing it. I’m hoping this isnt going to cost a fortune to fix. Please, does anyone know what is wrong with and how to fix the newest addition to my Apple family?
